Palestinians youths on Sunday clashed with Israeli forces in cities across the West Bank. Violence erupted near the West Bank town of Ramallah and Nablus where Israeli forces fired tear gas grenades towards Palestinian protesters.

At the same time, Israeli soldiers used dispersal means to scatter Palestinian youths who were throwing stones at the entrance of Nablus city.

In Beit Omar hundreds held funeral for Palestinian man who was shot during protest against Israeli forces last Thursday and died of his wounds Saturday (October 10) night.

After the funeral, more violence sparked as Palestinian protesters faced Israeli soldiers.

Tyres were set alight and some of the protesters threw home-made molotov cocktails towards the soldiers who sprayed them with skunk water and fired tear gas grenades.

Fresh clashes erupt on the Gaza border, with Israeli soldiers firing warning shots in the air to try to disperse hundreds of Palestinians, as unrest spuns further towards a full-scale uprising.

"23 Palestinians have died in 12 days of bloodshed that has spread from Jerusalem and the Israeli-occupied West Bank to Israel's interior and Hamas-ruled Gaza."

Against a backdrop of Muslim protests over Jewish visits to the al-Aqsa plaza, Islam's third holiest site, Palestinians have been attacking Israelis with knives, rocks and, on at least one occasion, guns.

Palestinians regard the increasing trips over the past year by Jewish groups and right-wing lawmakers to the compound in Jerusalem's walled Old City as eroding traditional Muslim religious control there.

Palestinians seek a state in the West Bank and Gaza with East Jerusalem -- which includes the Old City -- as their capital. Israel captured all three areas in the 1967 Middle East war. It withdrew soldiers and settlers from Gaza in 2005.
